Why be a Freemason?

Every man has his own reason for wanting to be a part of the greatest fraternity in the world. Regardless of your reason, you will benefit from membership because Freemasonry makes good men better. Look around our website and you will find much about our history, purpose, educational programs, character development, and charity. In today’s society, men lead busier lives than ever. Many Brothers find Lodge meetings to be an excellent “break from life,” where everyday troubles can be forgotten and Brotherhood prevails. Whatever your reason, Freemasonry has something to offer nearly every man.

How to join?

To connect with Freemasons in your community, many of whom you might already know, click: Lodge Locator

Using the above link will bring you to an interactive map of the Lodges in the state of Connecticut, showing you information about location, picture, and even when formal meetings are held. By clicking "Please Contact Me!" in any one of them, you will be given a simple form to fill out with your contact information.

"Lodge Locator" explained:

"Lodge" is an ancient term to describe places where Stone Masons would work when building things like a castle or even a cathedral. Today the term is borrowed to describe the places that Freemasons meet formally. You've probably driven right past them without even noticing, as they are just normal buildings that usually have a 'square & compasses' on the outside. To help you connect with those in a Lodge near you-even just to take a tour and ask questions-we've provided a Lodge Locator that operates the same as a traditional store locator.

On behalf of all Connecticut Masons, we appreciate your interest and look forward to helping you learn more about our work in our communities.

There are a few basic requirements. You must:

  • Be a man of at least eighteen years of age.
  • Be of good moral character and reputation.
  • Be under no restraint of liberty.
  • Have a belief in a "Supreme Being".
  • Be of sound mind and memory.
  • Come to the doors Freemasonry of your own free will and accord.

To Be One Ask One!

Do you know a Mason who is a relative, friend, colleague, coworker, or acquaintance? Tell them you are interested in learning about Masonry. Most Masons will be more than happy answer your questions and invite you to the Lodge to meet the "Brothers".

If you have greatness within you, achieving it in a team is much more effective.
